Newtown, CT: Sandy Hook Promise reports 4.15.2019 – Colorado just became the 15th state in the nation to pass extreme risk protection order (ERPO) legislation to help prevent school shootings!

This is an incredible step in the right direction. ERPOs allow courts to temporarily keep guns away from people who show warning signs of gun violence, and they’ve been proven to save lives.

Victories like this prove momentum is building across the country for meaningful, lifesaving change at the state and local levels. But even though your state has already passed an ERPO law, we need to keep pushing as hard as we can so children in every state are protected by lifesaving ERPO legislation.
